I'm not a minor league scout, or even a talent evaluator for that matter, but when I see a name such as Charles Furbush, I'm sure to work a feature into the blog for him. Furbush is a classic name, ranks up there with Dick Pole and Rusty Kuntz. Furbush is currently toiling in the Detroit Tigers minor league system in Single-A Lakeland, but would be more advanced if not for an injury which wiped out his entire 2008 season. Mr. Bush-of-Fur has a 5-4 record through 14 games started in '09, logging 71.2 innings, with a 3.77 ERA and respectable 1.24 WHIP. The lefthanded 2007 4th round draft pick, is 11-5 with a 3.10 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over 2 minor league seasons. I'm sure he knows how to get out of a hairy situation, or take a close shave on a liner up the middle. Here's to hoping for continued health and progression, because I'd love to see Furbush on the back of a Tigers jersey someday.
